I can’t seem to win with the weather here! It’s super humid and sticky, and then it rains and is cool for about an hour but immediately back to humid and sticky. The big problem is that the rain closes the arenas at the current barn so I have no where to practice! How am I supposed to get ready for this weekend?
And of course it’s supposed to storm all week and then be a “lovely” 94 on Saturday.
I went up to the barn last night even though I knew the arenas were closed. It took me an hour and a half to get there from my new office. What a drag. And then, when I was about ten minutes away the heavens opened up and POURED. I don’t mind riding in the rain but this was a drenching. Plus the thunder was constant and there was a lot of lightening. Road hack was not going to happen in that!
I waited it about a half hour but I was really feeling like going home. The rain stopped but the thunder didn’t. I decided to risk it.
We ended up going on a quick little hack but I’m not really sure how productive it was. Gus was not very relaxed and I was frustrated (at other things). At least they were miles I suppose.
Hopefully the storm today isn’t as bad. I’d really like to get in the ring and run through the BN B test. I don’t think I’ve ever ridden that one.
